The Cape May Scour Canada This Spring

Published: 2005-03-04
What is the spring for if not driving clear across the country? The Cape May don't seem able to think of anything else they'd rather do, so the band is going to spend their entire spring on the road. The pop-rock quartet is touring in support of their eagerly awaited debut full-length, which they gave the title "Central City May Rise Again". Recorded in Vancouver, mixed in Calgary, and released in January, the album features 11 tracks.

The West Coast portion of The Cape May's cross-country tour actually kicked off a few days ago on March 2nd, but there's still a lot more to come. They'll head back eastwards through their hometown of Calgary and straight on to Ontario, and a dip down into the states. No stopping there though; The Cape May are going for the real deal, hitting the East Coast in early April, and eventually making it back home for May.

Not too concerned with becoming superstars on Much Music, The Cape May base their music on strong songwriting and lush, drawn out instrumentation. To download three songs from "Central City May Rise Again" for the cost of nothing, go to The Cape May's label's site at: www.flemisheye.com.
